The imm cologne is the most important furnishing show in the world’s most important furnishing market. Right at the start of every year, it presents the new international furniture and interior trends and surprises visitors with numerous market-ready innovations. The huge depth and breadth of what’s on show is combined with high standards of product presentation. The imm cologne also provides an effective platform for up-and-coming designers. Trade visitors appreciate its distinct business atmosphere and high standards of service and organisation. The days on which the fair is open to the general public give exhibitors ample opportunity to conduct product and market tests and allow consumers to gather information and ideas for future purchases. For one week in January and in close association with an extensive programme of events in the city of Cologne, it is the epicentre of the international furnishing and design world.
